Default odd situation.....

I recently needed to rout the face of an assembly I'd already glued-'n-screwed, making it a bulky assembly. (pic 1). My intent was to make the routs equidistant from the centerline of the face to be routed. So, I needed to, a) be able to securely clamp the assembly to allow routing w/SSRK; b) allow a set up that would accommodate the bulk of the assembly; c) allow the equidistant routing. My EZ-1 isn't set up to accommodate bulky items, so I turned to my PBB.

Pics two and three show the set-up I used: my PBB w/slide in extension modules on either side, which are then connected by a short piece of track- making basically an open 'pit' that let the bulk of the assembly hang freely. I positioned all of this to allow the face of the assembly to be held captive. Then, it was just a matter of setting up some track and going to town w/the SSRK. Results are in pic 4.
